With the general aim of establishing a European Platform for systematic collection, exchange and analysis of longitudinal data on Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in Europe, the EUReMS project is set up by an international consortium to address the currently unmet needs of People with Multiple Sclerosis (PwMS)that have been identified by the Consortium as:
-lack of knowledge on the causes of MS;
-scarce knowledge on effectiveness of MS disease modifying drugs;
-lack of data on the burden of MS in Europe.
EUReMS is underpinned by the following principles:
-it should be built on already existing national or regional data collections;
-it should involve and combine the expertise of clinicians, researchers and patient organizations;
-it should address questions at an international level;
-it should include highest available expertise concerning its organization and technical solutions;
-it should ultimately contribute to improve access for PwMS across Europe to evidence-based health care services and offer a cutting-edge research tool to gain further insight into various aspects of MS.
